2019 Results

JustTalk ran its third and final NZ Student Justice Speech Competition in 2019.

This competition has been a great initiative in helping our youth develop an interest and gain more knowledge around some global and local justice issues. The speeches have shown us some innovative solutions and that our youth are empathetic to growing issues in our world.

Congratulations to all the students who participated in this competition. We hope that looking into the justice issues faced by society broadened your knowledge, opened up discussions and some critical thinking for future problem-solving.
